Without too much fanfare (outside of this post) I deactivated my Facebook and Messenger accounts. At some point I’ll swoop in and reactivate, maybe? There is content I want to stay alive in that context. But I’ll create a post to reach me though this website and not Messenger, and then log back out.
But for now? I needed a break from that inelegant platform for staying in touch.
Sadly, Instagram is fast becoming as rackety.
I believe there is good in sharing thoughts, feelings and snapshots of our days with folks online.
I believe in chronological timelines.
(I also want to see the daily specials from the local restaurant / joints I follow, but that’s another can of beans.)
I believe it’s best to avoid the comments section, and frankly? Facebook just seems like the comments section anymore.
I’ll sit tight. Someone is going to make a good platform for social connection, someday.
